  • Mood:


I heard of the Prayer of Jabez from my mother. I was curious so I bought the book. It appealed to me because it was a small book, easy to read and easy to carry with me. I am now reading the Prayer Of Jabez devotional. There is a suggestion that one keep a diary while reading the devotional so I thought this would be a good way to do that. Then I figured I'd make it a community in case anyone else wants to do the same.

I've never gotten excited over religion. I've been to weekend "retreats" where everyone left in tears of joy...everyone except me, that is. I never felt that rush of the Holy Spirit. I began to think that I simply was not blessed. Still, I believe in God and I see myself as spiritual.

I don't think I can explain this book and this little prayer or how it has touched me. I guess it's given me hope. It's a quiet kind of experience, the kind I'm comfortable with. Maybe that's it.

I read the first day devotional yesterday. There are questions at the end of the first day that I will answer in my next entry here.

To all new members, blessings.
